To round out your real working ranch Internship and thoroughly enjoy the off-ranch opportunities Wyoming has to offer, we recommend you budget to bring $400-$500 for off-ranch activities, including the overnight trip to Yellowstone National Park, pocket money for other off-ranch activities and meals in town, particularly if you are staying three weeks or longer.
